To Do Tuesday for the Week of December 8, 2020

Life has been a bit hectic since Thanksgiving, with work bordering on being completely insane. Consequently sewing and computer time has been at a premium the last week. I missed last week's To Do Tuesday because I just didn't have time to post, thankfully things calmed down by the weekend and I did get in some really good stitching time, else my to do list would have looked really pitiful.

Weekly To Do List for 11/24/2020

  • Red, White and Blue Stars: Continue with borders
  • Unity: Add next border, make flying geeese 
  • Grassy Creek: Start on Clue 1 
  • Morewood Mystery: Work on November clue 
  • Daisy Chain: De-thread, press, pack and ship 

So the week of Thanksgiving was really, really good.  In spite of work insanity, there are a few check marks for last week.

Weekly To Do List for 12/01/2020

  • Unity: Add one flying geese border, make flying geese 
  • Grassy Creek: Continue to work on Clue 1, start Clue 2 progress
  • Morewood Mystery: Work on December Clue 
  • Frolic: Make binding stitch to front, start hand stitching 

Three out of four is pretty good for a week that was pretty much rubbish till the weekend.  There will not be as much time for stitching this week. I have some plans with the Scientist in Training this weekend.  That means this week's list needs to be pretty reasonable.  

Weekly To Do List for 12/08/2020

Frolic:  Hand stitch the binding.

I've not gotten very far on the hand stitching yet and probably won't finish that till next week.  But Frolic should definitely be finished before the end of the month. 

Grassy Creek: Work on Clues 1 and 2

I've made a start on clue 1, actually have a few more of the HSTs finished than in this photo. I haven't started on clue 2 yet. Hopefully I'll be able to get a few blocks made on Sunday. 


Morewood Mystery: Work on the December Clue.

This is my fabric for the December clue. Of all my choices this is the one I'm not sure is going to work.  Fingers crossed that the pieces are big enough you get all the colors in each patch.  

Unity: Make flying Geese

I've got a good start on the flying geese border for the bottom.  I doubt it gets finished this week, but any progress is good.  

In addition to plans with the SIT, I've got Christmas wrapping to do, so that will cut into my stitching time as well. The plan for this week is to just keep all the projects moving.  Linking up with To Do Tuesday over at Home Sewn by Us.  Good luck with your to do list this week.

I imagine trying to quilt while working a demanding job is hard to do and to keep up with all the household things as well.

So glad you had Thanksgiving week to do what you love! You're making progress on all of your projects. Looking forward to seeing your Frolic finish!

Cheree @ The Morning Latte said...

Still looks like some nice progress. I bet it'll be great to finish up Frolic--will be watching for it!

You've reminded me that I have a lot of star blocks yet to make for Round 3 of my Unity quilt.

Keep plugging away on that hand stitching. I've decided that slow is OK for binding as I've become very slow at it.

You make good progress each week. The Morewood fabric is gorgeous!

I hope you get some time off soon so you can get some quilting done. That purple and green floral is gorgeous. I hope it works well in your mystery quilt.

Hi Kate! I think moving your projects along is a fabulous goal for the week! I may have to borrow that goal myself. Enjoy the time with SiT and wrapping presents. Some things are so much more important this time of year, right?! {{Hugs}} Thanks for linking up today! ~smile~ Roseanne

Glad you had a good week despite the work load. Have fun with your girl!

Sara said...

Hope that work load calms down for you before the holidays. It’s so wonderful that you get to spend time with your daughter and mother in spite of having to take extra precautions. I haven’t attempted to spend any time with my girls in the past month. They work extra shifts at the hospitals they work at, and now one of them (and her husband) are trying to recover from Covid. So . . . We are avoiding any and all contact with their households.

BTW - you have inspired me to keep working on Unity.

Ooooh, I love the fabric for the Morewood mystery! Hope you’ve had a chance to cut into it!
